Tycoonism “The world at large does not judge us by who we are and what we know; it judges us by what we have.”

August 25, 2009

This is perhaps one of the saddest facts in the world.  Yes, we are judged everyday not of what we know but of what we have.  Let us not be hypocrite but the present world we live in is engrossed wtih materialism as well as commercialism.

What is the real essence of who we are? We are our own person, and our actions and how we go around the world is our very essence.  Not our cars, our material possessions.

Progress can never be correlated to amassing of material wealth or sense pleasures and nor can it have anything to do with attainment of conducive circumstances in life. In fact progress is totally dependent on how much wisdom has been imbibed by our souls. The more ones inner wisdom is limited the more one is backward. Ones all round powers and capabilities are irrevocably related to how much knowledge/wisdom based wealth is present in ones psyche/soul.

Man’s ethical, cultural and spiritual status is directly related to how sacredly cultured, is his/her consciousness or soul. Mental advancement should also include amassing of material powers and their enjoyment capability. In ancient times man must have been more powerful physically if compared to today’s man. Despite this the state of ancient man’s consciousness was not advanced and hence his all round state too remained lackluster. When one cogitates over the backward state of ancient man it is clear that his/her mental ignorance was so painful and full of shame.

In ancient times man remained a laggard because of ignorance. Today we take pride in our progress only because of knowledge based materials available for our use. If we so desire that we attain eternal peace in days to come we will have to reach the pinnacle of imbibing human and spiritual values.  Today there is a dire need of world humanity imbibing more and more spiritual values for heralding heaven on earth and making world human beings divine. We know a great deal about our external life and the material world of sense objects and yet what is most amazing is that we just do not know anything about our inner self and our inner world. We are so engrossed in our external worldly transactions (eating, sleeping, earning wealth etc) that not only do we fail to study our true inner self but that we do not even think it to be very important to do so. If only we truly realize our true nature, goal of life and duty towards society we will be able to transform our relationship with the world for the better.
